Containers, distances, shadows, and associative thinking, the poetry of
solid objects, the surrealism in slightly altered perspective, measurement,
mathematics, displacement... a sense of intransigence. Bags, all those
bags, and packages deprived of natural light, seemingly in media res, but
arrested. The space between the objects in Steven CarrelliΒΉs work is time,
not only temporal disjunction, but the way time inheres to things, to lines,
to texture, to almost obsessive detail that brings the object to life, but
also brings us to the sense of time etched in process.
